MILAN — Specialization and centralization will likely edge out “managers from the world of finance and M&A” helming fashion brands. According to Giovanna Brambilla, partner at Milan-based executive search firm Value Search, a shift is taking place in the fashion industry, leading to increased focus and convergence at the decision-making level.
Following the changes in organization last month at Kering, which shuffled top management in a bid to accelerate growth of its fashion and “hard” luxury brands, Brambilla shared her thoughts with WWD on the strategies she sees taking shape in the industry.
